Lance Thompson, CEO & Client Growth Strategist at Idea Rocket Labs Website Design and Marketing in Des Moines, Iowa

Hi, I'm Lance Thompson. I'm a website designer and marketer and I create strategies that help businesses accelerate their growth.

For over 29 years, I’ve coached and created website designs and marketing strategies and for more than 500 small and large corporations, business leaders, and entrepreneurs that drive growth, multiply revenue, and increase profitability.

We're based out of Des Moines, Iowa but work everywhere (except North Korea and Cheboygan). I’ve had the fortune of working with business leaders around the world, from Brooklyn to Seattle, Tampa to Juneau, Osaka, Japan to Cape Town, South Africa, among many other locations.

I started my first website design company in Des Moines in 1996, just shortly after the internet had become widely available (and I had a full head of rich, sandy blonde hair). I had made my own website for fun when a local real estate agent asked if I could make a website for her and offered to pay for it. I thought “What? Get paid to do something I love?!?” and that’s when my passion for website design, marketing, and helping businesses unlock their potential began.

Since that time, I’ve personally built over 1,000 websites that have helped my clients earn more than $9.83 billion in revenue, across more than 77 different industries, for nearly every business type from start-ups to Fortune 50 Global corporations. Experience matters.

And I’d love to help you too. Let’s talk.

If you’re ready for your business to stand out, get found, and go further, call or contact me (no faxes, please) and let me show you how to transform the business you have into the business you’ve always dreamt of.
